I found this small oil painting I had done years ago at a painting workshop from art school.
I clearly remember the day I painted it. During the 3 hour figure painting workshop, half way through, I hated what I had. At the long break, I was so disappointed in myself, I took a walk to a local gallery and was introduce to paintings by Ann Gale. OMG! I was so inspired afterwards I ran back to the workshop, tossed aside the other painting, and in the remaining 1hr this came out.
I've never had quite the painting experience since, so this head study is special for that reason.
